Community programs Darebin

COVID-19 UPDATE: In order to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and community, our community programs are currently suspended.


Community development underpins everything we do at Bridge Darebin. We have developed a number of programs to engage Darebin residents who face barriers to engaging in our services.

Our regular community programs include Laneway Lunches, a two-course community lunch feeding 60 people every Friday.

At Your Own Pace provides a friendly and supportive environment for learners with additional needs to develop and practise their computer skills.

Social Lawn Bowls is held at Kingsbury Bowls Club. This fun recreational program is for learners with additional needs; carers welcome, too.

Moving Stars is a supportive group for adults with special needs to express their creativity and make friends. Moving Stars combines movement, dance, music, drama, art and relaxation for two hours of fun Monday nights.

Soul Kitchen Preston is a free community program every Sunday evening at Bridge Darebin: Preston that brings the local community together to share a meal and chat.
